Courses

ETEC 310  Material Science for Engineering Technology  3 Credits (3,0)

This course includes an introduction to materials science and engineering. Emphasis is given on the "processing, structure, properties, performance" relationships that lead to the development of materials for society's needs. Examples are drawn from the major materials classes. Prerequisite: Courses listed or greater or equivalent from mathematics placement exam.
Prerequisites: MATH 142 or MATH 143.

ETEC 315  Circuit Analysis  3 Credits (3,0)

This course provides a comprehensive review of the Kirchhoff's laws, resistive circuits and equivalent circuit study of electric circuits and networks. The course also includes first-order transients, sinusoidal steady-state analysis, and frequency response. Emphasis is given on basic principles and their application to circuit analysis using linear algebra and calculus.
Prerequisites: PHYS 160 and CESC 220.

ETEC 409  Applied Aeronautics  3 Credits (3,0)

In this course, students will apply the principles of aerodynamics, performance, and stability. Topics covered include airfoil and wing theory in the generation of lift and drag, high-lift systems, propeller and rotor performance, Reynolds number and Mach number effects, aircraft performance during the different stages of flight, and the effect of weight and balance on the stability of an aircraft.

ETEC 410  Thermodynamics for Engineering Technology  3 Credits (3,0)

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the heat, work, and kinetic theory of gases, equation of state, thermodynamics system, control volume, first and second laws of thermodynamics, reversible and irreversible processes, and introduction to basic thermodynamic cycles.
Prerequisites: PHYS 160.

ETEC 415  Control Systems  3 Credits (3,0)

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the analyses of closed loop systems using frequency response, root locus, and state variable techniques. System design is performed based on analytic and computer methods. This is an introductory control systems course. It presents a broad overview of control techniques for continuous and discrete linear systems, and focuses on fundamentals such as modeling and identification of systems in frequency and state-space domains, stability analysis, graphical and analytical controller design methods.
Prerequisites: ESCI 204 and ETEC 315.
